About Paxos

Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky — supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

We’re on a mission to open the world’s financial system to everyone by enabling the instant movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. For over a decade, we’ve built blockchain infrastructure that tokenizes, custodies, trades and settles assets for the world’s leading financial institutions, like PayPal, Venmo, Mastercard and Interactive Brokers.

About the team

Our Engineering team is looking for Software Engineers to join our new expansion into Armenia! We take pride in continuous innovation, high performance, effective mentoring and coaching, multi-disciplinary collaboration and the authentic application of lean/agile methods.

About the role

You’ll design and implement high-quality software from concept to launch, taking ownership of the design, coding, testing and deployment of key proprietary software components across our team.

What you’ll do

  • Develop best-in-class distributed systems to efficiently rebalance assets on multiple blockchains and financial platforms.
  • Apply engineering best-practices, including unit, integration and end-to-end testing for our CI/CD pipelines.
  • Effectively resolve ambiguity, analyze complex requirements and break down features and initiatives into tactical tasks.
  • Navigate trade-offs effectively among MVP vs. enterprise-grade, time-to-market and other relevant dimensions.
  • Search for the truth in product conceptualization and development, ensuring designs and implementations are fully aligned with the company mission and product goals.

About you

  • Software development experience, including at least one of the following: Golang, Kotlin, Rust, Java or C++.
  • Strong computer science and programming fundamentals (data structures, algorithms).
  • Mastery of core engineering concepts, including data structures, design best practices, run-time optimizations, and algorithmic complexity.
  • Solid understanding of concepts like load balancing, HA/failover, ingress, inter-service communications in a microservices style cluster, idempotence, ACID, guaranteed delivery, etc.
  • Technical expertise in at least one domain, such as Distributed Systems, Cryptography, Databases, or AWS.
  • Ability to understand and articulate the architecture of an entire system, including the technical trade-offs between different design implementations.
  • Familiar with online web application architectures and infrastructures, including clustering (Kubernetes), containerizing (Docker), message queuing (Kafka), telemetry/instrumentation (Prometheus/Grafana), etc.
  • Eagerness to work openly and collaboratively with a diverse multi-disciplinary team
  • Effective collaboration with stakeholders
  • Constantly seeks to learn new technologies, innovate and discover better ways to solve engineering challenges.
